Our Current Issue

In Volume 31-3, we examine different approaches to the challenges we face and solutions we employ to reduce damages and injury around the world. Listening and learning from others in our industry may be a valuable path to take, bringing us all closer to our ultimate goal.

Our feature story covers PelicanCorp in Australia and an exclusive, in-depth interview with CEO Duane Rodgers as he brings us inside his global company and their strategies and future vision for one-call centers around the world. We learn more about one-call procedures, digging/locate regulation and mapping around the world with a comprehensive article from SeeScan. We also include a global humanitarian initiative from Schonstedt Instruments Co., speak with Jack Beach, Director R&D and Manufacturing of VAC Group in Australia and get the scoop on an exciting new development in vacuum excavation.

Keeping touch with local issues as well: We follow up on our Episode 4 feature on INTREN – Building a New Chicago as they put safety first in excavating in a web of complex big city infrastructure. We revisit the site of a devastating gas explosion in Canton, IL (first covered in Vol31-1) with this exclusive follow-up on their efforts to rebuild with pride in their local community. We interview public and private officials at the 811-Chicago Block Party and learn more about the city’s efforts to build recognition for calling before you dig through city initiatives like the block party.
